Hi to whomever initiated this Karschnia page. There weren't any messages posted so I have no idea if we are from the same Karschnia family. My grandmother was Rosalia Karschnia, born in Detroit in 1878. Her parents were Franz (Frank) and Maria (Mary) Karschnia, who came to the U.S. in 1870. They were from West Prussia (now part of Poland), and were living in a small village called Polchau when their first son was born. My grandmother had several siblings, but I haven't had any contact with any of that side of the family in many years. I would be very interested in hearing about your Karschnia links, even if you don't think that our lines are connected.
